How do I make a Pool Alarm zone on a Vista-P Panel?

The Vista-15P, Vista-20P and Vista-21iP offer the option of a Configurable Zone type (2 on the Vista-15P, or 4 on the Vista-20P, Vista-21iP) which can be configured to provide a non-standard response in the event of such incidents, when a standard zone type is not sufficient. Configurable Zone Types allow you to choose the Contact ID reporting code for alarm and/or trouble.

The following settings will create a zone type which will activate a steady keypad sound upon an open or short whether the system is armed or disarmed. This means you must use the End of Line Resistor on this zone. To keep this zone from reporting to Central Station, leave the alarm report code in zone programming set to 00. Pool zones, particularly in Florida, usually require a means to physically shunt the zone for brief periods, and for this reason, no wireless option is given. This zone type can not be bypassed through the keypad.

Enter programming and in *182, enter the following 10 digits (exactly as shown):

4, 1, 4, 1, 4, 5, 0, 0,1, 2

In programming location *183, you must enter the Contact ID report code you wish to use with zones programmed as this type (Zone Type 90).

Fault Only - Program *183 as 1, 3, 4, 3, 8, 0

In zone programming, go to the appropriate zone number and program it as Zone Type 90.

You'll want to set this to "general response". This is used to track the activity of the zone without sending signals to the central station. This will announce when opened and will re-trigger an audible sound every 10 seconds until the fault is acknowledged.
Forgot to add. Basically, what I want to happen is for the alarm to be triggered regardless whether the panel is armed or disarmed...then turn off the alarm sound manually via panel or keyfob. But I don't want the panel to report the event to central station.
Can the same be done for the Lyric Controller LCP500-L ? If so, how?
